Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic, progressive disorder that affects the nervous system, specifically the dopamine-producing cells in the brain. The condition is characterized by tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with coordination and movement. Parkinson's disease can make it difficult to perform everyday tasks such as dressing, grooming, and cooking. It causes problems with balance and gait, making it difficult to walk and increasing the risk of falls. Emotional problems include depression, anxiety, dependence and loneliness, and isolation. Finally. Social life is disrupted due to embarrassment which can be due to tremor, walking difficulty, poor co-ordination etc. These symptoms lead to a loss of independence and a reduced quality of life.
